why does uploading effects my downloading speed

Recommended Posts

This is fairly normal.....When you upload you are using most of your bandwidth to send packets upstream. Downloading is when you bring packets downstream from a server. Unless you are really lucky or pay a ton of money your download will allways be faster then your upload. It is not susprising that when you are uploading your download speed takes a hit it is just the nature of thing.

swimmer is joining in style I see :) nice to have you in forum

:idea: I think what swimmer ment to say is...

:arrow: When you download you are also uploading requesting packets of info ~~ if you are downloading or vice-verse it is going to effect the other. It's not like you just talk to the server and say "hey, server, I want poop.zip" --- your computer will request poop.zip talk back and fourth to the server comfirming that you are on the other end still requesting the file ~~ this is also how the progress meter works when you download something it actually downloads in packets of information not as a whole

So when you are uploading something and your upload cap is reached your download is being lagged because the request of the packets is being lagged ~~

:Dit's like having a badass delivery service with some fat lazy guy checking in the packages :lol:

you need fiberoptic to get a full duplex connection, your Network card runs in half duplex mode if you got dsl or cable, since i got fiber optic to my house i manual set it to 10 Mbps full in my NIC setup, auto negotiation dosent work 100% for me.

Try forcing it to 10Mbps full and see if your upload affect less then before, if it dosent work use 10 Mbps half.
